HOW TO RECOGNISE ANEMIA?

September 28, 2008

This very simple chart shows the color of differing stages of anemia looking at the inner eye membrane. Refer to your local veterinarian. Yes, i know, very very few out there who practice and are experienced in ruminants here is Sarawak.

This is what the average good inner eye membrane color should look like. This is from a goat who is not suffering from heavy wormload.

The photo below shows a very anemic goat suffering from heavy wormload. Can you see that the inner eye membranes are white? Non treatment will almost definately result in death even more so for pregnant doe’s.
